Multiracial and the Media
This past week, most media covered the press release by the Census Bureau about the results of the "Multiple-Race" population. We have been in talks with the bureau about the wording of the classification and as a result they have at least gone to "multiple race," which is better than "People of More than One Race" and "Combination People." They may get to the preferred terminology of "multiracial" yet.
Meanwhile, we rated a portion the media that covered the story:
Excellent Use of the term Multiracial throughout the articles"
Equal time to the use of "Multiracial":
The Sacramento Bee
Money Talks News
The absolute worst use of terminology:
Project RACE will continue to try to educate the media.
